What would be your back 5 for Newcastle v Brentford? Vote now

5 years ago

Newcastle v Brentford is next up and we’re interested in which players United fans would choose to make up the back five.

Rafa Benitez has shown that he has no respect for reputations or previous team selections, always ready to pick the right team for any particular match.

Even at Rotherham, the Newcastle boss left out the club’s best player this season. Matt Ritchie, and his replacement Christian Atsu proved to be the match winner.

Newcastle’s last home match saw three goals conceded, so will he stick with that same goalkeeper and back four, or make changes.

The following game of course saw United keep a clean sheet away at Rotherham.

So pick a goalkeeper, full-backs and centre-halves from the selection below and we’ll publish the accumulated NUFC supporter results later.
